iTunes doesn't play MP4 from profile MP4 Unprocessed

Nov 13, 2013 at 7:30 AM
I thought with using beta 14 that MP4 Unprocessed is faster and still would play using iTunes and my Apple TV. But it just sits at time code 0:00 not playing.

Is it possible to use MP4 Unprocessed or must I use MP4 Fast which does work?

Here is the file info from MediaInfo.
Non Video Differences:
MP4 Unprocessed is 6 Channel AC-3, also stream ID 1
MP4 Fast is AAC 2 Channel, also stream ID 2

That is because your source video is mpeg2. The MP4 unprocessed only works when the source is mpeg4.

So really it not a mp4 file.
